Look at those markings.

Ran into this at Shooter’s Supply Shop (Loveland, OH). While it’s not really in my wheelhouse, I can’t help but think when will be the next time I get to fondle an honest-to-goodness 1844 Carbine. 

Take a close look at the markings on the receiver and butt plate. VR for Victoria Regent, Tower of London maker’s mark, and the curious NY stamp on the butt plate. I can only assume that is a  New York state militia stamp. 

What say you? What do you see in these markings?

 

 

Sincerely,
